With the departure of Michael Lea, manager Frank Sinclair commented: “Louis will now be our number one choice at left back.”
The 22-year-old left the club last season because he wasn’t getting enough games, but ironically the week after he left Lea was injured and missed the last 12 games of the campaign.
“Louis never let us down when he played and it was very hard to leave him out of the side at times because he is a quality player. It was just unfortunate for him that we had a seasoned pro in Michael Lea in that left back berth.
“Now he can make that shirt his own and he was the first person I thought of when Mike Lea said he was leaving.”
